Mind continues
To baulk at verbal
Fetters
Aging body
couldn’t care
less

biting, biting chill
bullets I force body
into warm jacket
to stretch limbs
limp
languid

bounding puppies shiver
chomping at leashes
silently begging
warm coats, faces
absolutely
darling

winter sunlight
a dull yellow ochre
spurious saffron sold
in unscrupulous
stores

a caring physician
heals with genuine
concern more so
than written
scripts
